The Plot Leading Up to Murder in Hulas and Homicide:

She was known as the Hula Honcho. Winnie Waheli was the head judge at the annual hula contest on Kikiwai Beach. Once regarded as the most-accomplished dancer in all of Hawaii, Winnie’s career abruptly ended two decades ago when one of her more strenuous moves produced a recurring medical problem that prevented her from ever competing again professionally.
That’s when she was hired by the Kikiwai Queen Hotel to organize and orchestrate the hula event. Each year, Winnie made a point of meeting the competitors and talking to the press, all the while ensuring that she was the center of attention.
Tonight would have been the night that Winnie and this year’s hula extravaganza would once again make headlines. But all is not well in paradise, for someone must have taken exception to Winnie’s overbearing antics. This morning, her lifeless body was found on the very beach where she had achieved both fame and fortune, the seeming victim of foul play.
Who would dare end the career of the maven of movement? Could someone have plotted the death of the darling of divatude? Or, was this just the result of a temper tantrum by a close associate? It would take a unique perspective and expert investigative skills to identify the guilty party.

The Plot Leading Up to Murder In
The Curse of the Comet!

It is September 17, 1945
A gathering occurred last night at Highview, the secluded Beverly Hills estate of movie star Maurice Mason and his wife, Dianna Darien – one that proved to be both intriguing and tragic. For, this morning, the body of Maurice’s twin brother, famed archaeologist Myron Mason, was found draped across the thorn bushes that grow in profusion around the grounds.

The death added a morbid punctuation to an event that had been conceived as a lark – a gathering to disprove an ancient curse. For, last night also, the comet Hopkay made its first appearance in the heavens in 400 years.
The celestial messenger was last seen the year that the native Central American leader, Hopkay, met an untimely demise. His people, the Intecs, interred him in a tomb which, they proclaimed, must be untouched for all time.

Yet, 10 years ago, Myron Mason found the tomb and robbed it of its treasures. An inscription on the wall of the crypt proclaimed that whoever desecrated the spot would be cursed. When the comet named after Hopkay reappeared in the heavens, the desecration would be revenged.

The motley group of attendees toasted the archaeologist as the comet entered the solar system. Was the curse a remnant of an ancient religion, or the uneducated ramblings of a primitive people? The answer would soon be apparent – and deadly obvious.

I Saw Mommy Killing Santa Claus

It’s Christmas time again and the toy department at Lacy’s is selling more merchandise than its chief competitor, Tidewater’s Toys. The main reason for this explosion of sales is Elmer Ellsworth, Lacy’s holiday Santa Claus.

Before Elmer was hired for last year’s Christmas season, Lacy’s toy receipts were so bad that the store was ready to stop selling toys altogether. Now, business is booming because Elmer makes Santa come alive to young and old alike. In a daily ritual, kids hug Santa and mothers give him kisses as photos are taken for Christmas albums.

But, in the midst of parents and children lined up to tell the jolly ol’ elf all about their wish lists, Elmer stands up, utters a faint, “ho, ho, ho,” and falls to the floor in front of his chair. He is dead. Someone has done in the department store Santa before he could grant everyone’s wishes.

Who would put the ice on the iconic idol? What could Santa have done to elicit such a raucous response? And, how would the authorities go about determining what happened to the holiday mirthmaker? It would require a team of seasonal sleuths to lambaste the lies and come up with a killer.

Gobble, Gobble, Death, and Trouble

He was world-renowned for his gourmet turkey dinners. Chef and restaurant owner Ramsey Gordon attracted food aficionados from everywhere to his fine-dining establishment, “The Golden Gobbler.” Known to be a tyrant of a boss and an ill-mannered business associate, his recipe for turkey has remained a secret for years, despite the protestations of those who proclaim that the ingredients and formula for such a succulent dish should be shared with everyone.

Last night, Gordon’s restaurant was to have been jam-packed with hungry customers, waiting for the chance to devour his famous main course. Yet, it was not to be. The famished fowl feasters were unexpectedly told the sad news that Gordon was dead, the victim of an unfortunate accident. For earlier yesterday, while lighting his personal oven – the one only he was allowed to use – an explosion rocked the restaurant, putting an untimely end to the career of the duke of the drumstick. The circumstances were suspicious enough that authorities investigated and proclaimed the death to be not an accident, but a well-calculated homicide.

Who would have done away with the wizard of the white meat with Thanksgiving in the air? And what of the secret recipe? Was it written down and stored in a safe spot, or would it vanish from the earth forever? Would “The Golden Gobbler” remain at the top of the restaurant heap or would Gordon’s death signal the end of a legendary gastronomic treat? Only sound logic and expert sleuthing skills would solve the case and ensure that no clues would be left over.

The Disappearance of Death

Last night, The Great Radinski, world-renowned magician and entertainer to royalty, returned to his home on Mystic Lake to perform before a Halloween costume party of friends, relatives and admirers at the nearby Mystic Inn.

As he amazed the crowd with incredible illusions and magic tricks that defied explanation, he suddenly looked at his pocket watch and realized he was late for an important “appointment.” He disappeared in a cloud of smoke as individuals in the crowd looked at each other in disbelief.

Fifteen minutes later, a muffled explosion was heard and police arrived to inform everyone that Radinski was dead. His body was found along the shore of the lake. He had been killed by an explosive device. Only through careful questioning and expert sleuthing would motive and murderer emerge.

A little over a week ago, The Great Radinski had returned home from a triumphant tour of Asia and Europe where he had appeared before packed houses in major cities. European newspapers reported that, in Prague and Budapest, the magician had received death threats in the form of letters that were sent to his dressing rooms. Both letters are in the hands of European authorities, undergoing analysis.

Radinski’s fame was assured a decade ago when, live on a BBC broadcast, he made London’s Tower Bridge and St. Paul Cathedral disappear, then reappear ten minutes later. It is considered by many to be the greatest illusion ever performed. For years, it had been rumored that Radinski stole the trick from another magician. Those allegations have never been proven.

Born in Poland as Igor Radinski, he had emigrated with his parents to Mystic Lake. It’s said that he also had psychic powers and may have left documents that would help pinpoint the name of the culprit.
